We heard a lot of rumors about this parking lot in Bayville at Central Regional Middle School, right next to the High School.

We now know the answer to this crazy question, why is this parking lot for sale at Central Regional High School, thanks to Dr. P (Central Regional's Superintendent.)

This had a lot of people scratching their heads, including me. Why would this lower parking lot be for sale in Bayville, NJ?

This is the parking lot in front of Central Middle School, right off of the Berkeley exit on the Garden State Parkway.

Here's what Dr. Parlapanides explained all about the parking lot for sale in a Facebook post:

Just to clear up any questions. There is a minimum bid. With the revenue, a 200 spot parking lot will be built on the Kraig Estate. These spots will be used in the summer and weekends for Veteran Park concerts and events. During the school year it will become the new junior parking. Another 100 spots will be added behind the Home Football Bleachers for handicapped parking, graduation, and games. The developer must have the approval of both Berkeley Council and Central Board of Education. both parties have worked hard and have a tremendous concept. It will benefit students and the community. The best part it is private money being used. Please be patient we are still waiting on a few items. Thank you. Dr. Parlapanides

We now know about the update and that bids were opened at a recent Central School Board meeting held by Dr. Parlapanides.

The plan for the two-acre parking lot, agreed upon by both the Berkeley Township Council and the Central Regional Board of Education, is a pool, an ice rink and a restaurant of some sort. These amenities would be for students.

Dr. Parlapanides said, according to the patch.com.
